>> he's a little bit of both. he's like a mass of contradictions, and he's doing all the right things for maybe not all of the right reasons. it's a story of men and women who built the first atomic bomb in los alamos, new mexico and everything we know about the world, surveillance, secrets, was all sort of born in this time and place, so it makes for explosive drama. >> how much of it is based on truth? >> so much of it is based on truth. but the characters at the center of the show are fictional. so it gives the writers an opportunity to kind of draw parallels to the world we live in now, which makes the show so exciting, it's like historical science fiction. >> did you know anything about the making of the atom bomb? >> how long have you known me? >> 25 years. >> do you think i knew anything about the nuclear -- >> do you know now? >> yes, i know a lot more than i did before. when you are an actor, you weren't paying attention to physics in high school. you were wondering about the
school play. >> how about "big stone gap ". he's a great writer, wrote the book. you went to big stone gap. >> we filmed it all there in the town where the story is set. that's me kissing ashley judd. >> what was that like? >> kissing ash lay ley is fantastic. i wanted to kiss her sister and her mom too. >> wynonna. >> i don't know about ashley, but the other two. >> she's wonderful. >> also we have to talk about "truth", which i saw the other night. it's spakts. john plays cate blanchett's husband, and it is the story of the downfall of dan rather, and it's incredible. and, you, again, are so conderful con wonderful. >> i loved playing her husband. and rather, you've known him for 25 years.
the alchemy of redford as rather is amazing. robert redford is playing you. so rather is thrilled with the movie. the movie is amazing. it asks so many hard questions about journalism and the world we live in now. and i thought rather loved how hard-hitting it was. and it's unsparing for everybody in it, and a brilliant, brilliant movie. >> we're going to play a little game, you two bffs. you have that game you play called "plead the fifth." i'm going to ask you questions you can answer or plead the fifth. we're going to start with you, andy. would you rather spend the day with each other or sarah jessica parker. >> we have a threesome? >> no, you have to pick. >> sarah. sarah. >> you're both going with sarah. >> andy, did a guest on your show ever hit on you. >> yes. every night. >> who? who? >> have you seen those bartenders he gets on?
>> they're there for my pleasure. you? yeah. >> who? >> can i plead the fifth? is this plead the fifth? >> what's the, okay. >> besides ashley judd? no. i'm just kidding. guest? >> i plead the fifth. >> who was your most difficult co-star, john? >> my most difficult co-star? i've already pled the fifth once. it was children. anybody under the age of 7. >> he hates kids. >> i do not. >> you can see "manhattan" tuesday on wgn. "truth" opens sunday. >> seth roggin's going to be up next. steve jobs coming up right after this. >> what do you do? seen is this, axe dry spray antiperspirant. why are you touching
your armpit? i was just checking to see if it's dry. don't, that's weird. the first ever dry spray antiperspirant from axe. you get used to the funk in your man-cave. you think it smells fine, but your wife smells this... sfx: ding music starts luckily for all your hard-to-wash fabrics there's febreze fabric refresher it doesn't just mask, it eliminates odors... ...you've gone noseblind to woman inhales use febreze fabric refresher till it's fresh and try pluggable febreze... ...to continuously eliminate odors for up to 45 days of freshness pluggable febreze and two more ways [inhale + exhale mnemonic] to breathe happy. and sleep deprived. to feel well rested. the only one to combine a sleep aid... plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. be a morning person again
look, i took my shoe off. i wanted to show you this. we want to make sure that this will put a smile on your face. >> it's just what every male wants, a red sports car with his own personal driver, and little oliver loves being taken for a ride. >> let's check it out. >> is he driving you? >> the dog is driving. the dog is driving. >> oh. >> is the dog seriously driving? >> no. >> who's driving? >> maybe the dog is driving.
it is try day friday. bravo's andy cohen is hanging out with me while kathie lee is away. you may want to check out one of the new films, it's "steve jobs". >> it's about one of our most fascinating innovators of all time, the founder of apple, who ideas. >> and take a look. >> apple, $1 billion. i doesn't know possible. i have three independent accountants try to explain it to me.
i started with the apple -- >> we're going to go back stage a moment. >> i started with the apple ii team because we don't make that anymore. >> just stop with art with the top guys. >> there are no top guys. there ra b players, and b players discourage the a players, and i want a players at apple and not dell. >> you are not b players. >> we are 90 days from insolvency. >> you get so mad just watching the clip. >> when you think of apple, do you think of steve jobs? and there is this other steve that plays a big, big part. and clearly you can tell by that clip their relationship was contentious at best. describe what that relationship is like. >> in real life it was
but everything is based on rea steve wozniak designed the original apple computer, and the apple ii is what financially supported apple for decades, and steve jobs really didn't like that computer or have anything to do with designing it and was so very resentful towards it and refused to acknowledge publicly that it was in any way instrumental to apple's success. and since it was pretty much wozniak's entire legacy, that obviously frustrated him. >> playing this role, you know that steve wozniak will be watching this. did you get to meet him? >> yeah. >> what did you glean from him? >> he's a very sweet, loveable, warm person. that's one thing i tried to inject in the character. there was a lot of friction in the movie, a lot of people yelling at each other. i thought it would be nice if one guy was nice. and his passion for technology was unlike anything i have ever
seen. the way he would talk about it, i've never seen someone talk about a computer the way he talked about a computer. >> did you connect, would of have gone out and had a drink with him? was he a fun kind of guy? >> yeah, we hung out, we went to dinner. he's very friendly, got amazing stories. >> now aaron sorkin did a lot of writing. >> we're used to that pace, that crazy pace. is that the kind of pace that we're going to see in this? >> yeah, the movie feels like an action movie with people talking. it's really incredible how they were able to pull it off. it was, as someone who makes movies, i was blown away when i saw the finished project. it is something achieving such a high level of difficulty that it's incredibly frustrating for me to watch because i know i won't myself be able to achieve it. but yeah, it's an incredibly thrilling, heart-pounding movie, which is amazing because it's mostly people talking to each other.
>> there has been a movie about steve jobs that came out a few years ago, a documentary. why do you think people will want to see this one? >> obviously, i was not interested in steve jobs at allmovie. i thought about the guy who made my phone the same way i thought about the guy who made my glasses or my shoes. it's one of the best scripts. if it was fictional, it would be an exciting movie to watch. even if you don't care at all about steve jobs, it's a really fun movie to watch. >> come back to see us like i >> sure. >> all right, you can catch steve jobs in theaters today. get ready to find out what hurts the most when rascal flatts sings one of their biggest songs. >> crazy.
